The Three Little Aliens and The Big Bad Robot by Margaret McNamara and Mark Fearing
This is a delightful story! It's a lot more fun than three pigs and the big bad wolf. Mark Fearing's illustrations are a hoot. One alien has a single eye, another has two, and the third one has three. And I dare you to pronounce "Nklxwcyz". That's one of the alien's names...
Schwartz & Wade Books sent me copy of this book for review, and I'm glad. Thank you for the opportunity. It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.
I enjoyed this fun remake of a traditional fairy tale with new characters. There's also a good educational opportunity here as they learn about our solar system and the planets in space.
The little aliens are funny looking and create unique homes on planets we haven't explored yet. However, the big bad robot is after them and intends to have them as munchies.
This isn't a boring tale, and children should have fun reading it more than once. They could even make alien and robot noises if they were so inclined; or you could reading it aloud.
Why not snag a copy and let your little one laugh at this fun tale of little aliens out on their own...
